Following the request of the Group of Seven Industrialised Nations (G-7), President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he has directed Nigeria’s service chiefs to produce a list of the logistics needed to execute the war against the Boko Haram sect.
Buhari said this on Thursday, June 11, while speaking with journalists at the end of the extraordinary summit of Heads of State and Government of Lake Chad Basin Commission and Benin at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
He said the leaders of the G-7 requested for the list during his recent meeting with them in Baravia, Germany.
The President said, “they have actually asked me to discuss with their Chief of Defence Staff or their Ministries of Defence or talk to them directly on what we need.
“So, I brought this case to our meeting here and I told them that Nigeria has gone quite far.“I had five hours meeting with my service chiefs and I asked them to produce comprehensive logistic requirements.
“I also advised my colleagues to be prepared to produce their logistic requirements so that after the AU meeting, we will agree on what to send to the head of G-7, President of Germany.”
